Lord, I'm tired, so tired from walking
And Lord, I'm so alone
And Lord, the dark is creeping in, creeping up to swallow me
I think I'll stop, rest here a while

This is all that I can say right now and
This is all that I can give

And didn't You see me crying
And didn't You hear me call Your name
Wasn't it You I gave my heart to
I wish You'd remember where You sat it down

I didn't notice You were standing here
I didn't know that that was You holding me
I didn't notice You were crying too
I didn't know that that was You washing my feet

    General CommentHe isn't really mad, its a song about the common happening. When things get bad, and dark times hit, people blame God. And start asking why, why didn't you help me, why didn't you listen to me, why weren't you with me..... but Jesus was with you, and he was there for you and he felt your pain.

    General CommentQuite honestly, this song is about feeling alone.

    It's too easy -in the middle of this great, vast world- to get 'lost' in it. It's too easy to feel tiny and insignificant.
    And it's all too easy to feel like you're the only one. The only one that's following and loving the God that you remember changing your life.

    But, you don't. feel changed anymore.

    You just feel stuck and alone.
    You feel like God's left you behind, somewhere.

    And, eventually, you realize that God didn't leave you behind, at all. He's much closer than you could have imagined. And, he was there the entire time.

    Offering God 'everything' is a common promise. It shouldn't be. People usually don't know what they're promising. They're just singing along at some church convention.
    Offering God everything is not always a 'happy' thing. Often times, it's out of pain.

    And that's what this song is, i think.
    "I'm sick and I'm weak and I'm tired, and I know I'm not worth all that much, God - I know I need you. So, you can have all of me, however much it's worth - just. take it."
